Westword's Description

Tamayo's owner, nationally renowned restaurateur Richard Sandoval, grew up working in his family's Acapulco restaurants, and when he opened his first restaurant in Colorado, in a prime corner space on Larimer Square, he billed his cross of traditional dishes with contemporary techniques as "Modern Mexican." But a decade and several restaurants later,
Tamayo was beginning to look anything but modern. So in early 2013 he closed the restaurant for a four-week, million-dollar renovation that not only revamped the interior, but also overhauled the menu. Now it features four versions of guacamole, including a killer smash of avocados pelted with chicharrons, as well as several new tacos; the beverage program has been upgraded, too, with nearly 150 tequilas lining the shelves above the bar and a list of specialty cocktails. What was getting old is new again.

    Any place that gets a down review from the self-absorbed and sneering Jason Sheehan gets 5 stars from me. I was there for the 1st time last night and all aspects of my experience were outstanding. I had the chili rellenos which were unlike any I've had prior and the range of flavors were a real rush to my palate. In addition, I shared an appetizer of the roasted veggies which... More >>

    The bottomless margarita brunch (unlimited small plates and free flowing brunch cocktails) for $35 is a no brainer!

    Tamayo offers great dining in Denver's Larimer Square with fresh Mexican food flavors. Start with a prickly pear margarita or a michelada, and savor an order of the mole poblano for dinner. Me gusta!
